Woman superglues mouth shut

28 posts in this topic

An unfortunate woman in Dunedin, New Zealand, who reached for her lip gloss in the middle of the night instead grabbed superglue and accidentally glued her mouth shut.

Local police say when the woman called them for help, she sounded like "she had been gagged" on account of her predicament.

OMG, I got chills when I read the title, especially with the thought of her doing it on her own. Then it just turns out to be an accident.

Would be very chilling if the had a cold and a blocked nose!

What is chilling is I just liked a post you made in another thread, I checked my content and you had just done the same. B)

Edit: this really funny, but I think my original response was mod action worthy.

But yipes to keep your superglue and lip balm in the same place enough to mistake the two.. That's just foolish.

Because he finished the job himself and then fell asleep?

I guess she didn't have any nail polish remover.

By the time she tasted it, it would have been to late.

Something seems wrong.

Not that it couldn't happen, but the tip of superglue(even if removed) is much smaller than lip gloss. Plus, as someone here said, it does have a rather distinctive odor.

So, my humble take on this is that either she was completely drunk or otherwise drug impaired, or, she just wanted her 10-seconds of bizzare fame and did it on purpose, knowing it would not cause any permanent damage.

She could have waken up and reached for the lip balm on instinct. By the time the smell regastered it was to late. Or someone played . Joke on her.

Morse code. :passifier:

Really, though, just a "hang-up" with or without a previous "muffled voice" will cause a police response.

At least in the US.

Lucky she wasn't intending on using KY jelly instead of lip balm. :lol: ...ouch - I bet that will have been embarrassing to get sorted

A tube of glue would come in handy while trying to watch a movie on tv with the wife.

Once upon a time I was a lad of only 5. I superglued my left eye closed. My mom was furious. My eye was glued closed for about a week. Every night I'd have to soak it with a warm washcloth. But at least I was a child!
